I am one of those people who MUST eat breakfast first thing in the morning. We have a very busy morning so sometimes this can be difficult. A few years ago I found a recipe for overnight oatmeal and since then, this has been my breakfast 6 mornings a week- Sundays I switch it up!
I use 6 jelly jars, fill each about half full with old fashioned oats. Stir in your favorite fruit- dried fruit is easiest (raisins, craisins, dates), but in the summer I’ll use blueberries or strawberries. I also mix in about a tablespoon of Chia seeds, chopped walnuts or almonds, and a few shakes of cinnamon. I fill the jar almost to the top with almond milk. Stir the mixture, place the lid on top, and refrigerate. Each morning I grap one, remove the top and microwave for about 45 sec- 1 min and I’m off! Since I make 6 on Sunday night, they all taste fine by day 6, but I would say 7-10 days for expiration on this.
